Time to shave! :)
Pretty nice for a cheap macro. The yellow CA it gives is actually quite nice in this context...

I think this should be the link:

Thank you, that was interesting.

May I suggest that next time you do this, just cut from the same shot (like the wide shot) one Custom Preset after another, don't have the # scroll across the screen but just in one place, then we can scroll through the footage getting a direct comparison between each setting, seeing the same shot, then do all the closeups together the same way. Just makes it easier to really compare.

Appreciate your taking time to demo this. I still like 17 & 18 the most in your test.

Put another way to see the test, 8 camera presets in a single window, but for better viewing some HD files here in different sizes (ASAP): http://www.stefanofolgaria.it/test/allHD_1080p.mov
http://www.stefanofolgaria.it/test/allHD_720p.mov
http://www.stefanofolgaria.it/test/allHD_480p.mov

and ASAP also the 18 card presets here:

My first short on the A1

Hey everyone. I just recently shot an short in Arabic, but it's subbed so no worries. It's around 6:30mins long.

Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pSLPm_v9aSE

I have a feeling that I'm not getting the best picture. I'm not sure if you can tell since this is youtube quality, but I do feel that something is off. I'm really hoping for some tips.

Oh, the movie is called The Last Bahraini. Bahrain is a small island in the Middle East and the movie is about a thief who attempts to steal a watch from an "inferior" Indian taxi driver. You see, locals in the Arabian Gulf some locals see themselves as superior to people from the subcontinent.

Err... Yeah, I just wanted to explain that to make the movie more understandable to the non-Arabs in the forums, which is pretty much almost everyone here. =)

Enjoy.

Excellent work

Looks like it was a little dark though, maybe utube problems

Great Job
Doug

Music was good too

Nice!!!

I liked it. The story always has and always be the sine qua non. The technology you use to tell it is merely a conduit.

For You Tube it looked great. You are well on your way man. Putting it down is the biggest step. Tweaking your image to your liking just gives you finer control over your message.

Yeah, I definately agree that story is key. Yet, I'm still trying to get the best out of my camera. I recently downloaded some New York at night footage from on here and I was amazed at what the A1 can do. It's probably just New York being photogenic though, but I just want to make sure.

Noob question: By the way, I edit on Premiere Pro 2.0. If I plainly just export as an AVI file, will it technically be HD?

It goes way way way beyond racism. There is also tribalism, clanism, and issues of fatherhood even within families.

The Arab world and the Gulf States in particular are as diverse as anyplace on earth.
Yup, got that right.

I think that's because I've been screwing around with the presets a bit too much. =p

Oh, are you here too...

Nice pics Rumi
You mentioned that the colors were a bit flat, haven't any of the presets solved that issue?

Well you can adjust the colors a lot. I just like how the HVX produces rich greens.

Best to you friend.
